also in 1999, this became the day in which JFK experienced its hottest average mean temperature of 91.0°. the high/low was 102/80, sixteen degrees above normal. on the day the temperature hit 104° (which is JFK's hottest reading of all time), the low was 77°, so the average mean temp was half a degree cooler.


2018 - this was Central Park's fifth day in a row with a low of 76° or warmer. this was the twelfth time such a streak of five days or more has occurred. half of the twelve streaks has happened since 1970 and there were no such lengthy streaks from 1909 to 1978. also, for the first time ever, the first five days of July all had a low temperature of 76° or warmer.

When one reads about a summer day (especially in July) on this blog that the high has been in the 60s, one may assume that it was a rainy day. July 5th, 1979 was an anomaly because not only the low was one of the chilliest July readings on record, but no rain (not even a trace of precipitation) fell and the skies were actually sunny that day. I wonder how that even was possible in NYC.
